PLEASE READ: Below is a lot of specific photography requirements. However, in general, a student's senior yearbook picture should look like a traditional semi-formal portrait. Currently, many families are choosing more casual attire and settings for pictures. Every attempt will be made to include the specific photo you want represented in the yearbook. 

REQUIRED

Image must be in color
Portraits need to be from the waist up (Head and shoulders preferred)
 Full figure images will be cropped

·          Simple background - Outdoor backgrounds however background should be subtle

·          Full‐face view, no profiles or "turn around" shots

·          Color, glossy print paper, no texturing. (If sending a hard copy for us to scan).

·          The digital photo should follow these requirements: save as a JPEG file, sized at 10 x 12 picas or same ratio, color set to RGB, resolution set at 300 DPI.

·          DEADLINE MUST BE MET: Friday, March. 1, 2019 by 2:35 p.m. Email crypstra@bathschools.net or bring photos to the high school office or have the photographer send a CD to the school. DO NOT LEAVE UNDER THE DOOR.  

·          Color photographs must be made from a retouched negative.

·          Do NOT trim the print. We can crop extra space around the picture; the head size is more important than the size of the print itself.

·          Please also submit a release form/letter from your photographer so we can legally use your photo both in the yearbook and in the senior class composite.


NOT ACCEPTABLE

·          No non‐glossy or textured finishes.

·          No ¾ face views

·          No profile (side) views.

·          No “soft touch,” “misty,” double exposures, pictures of flowers, wicker chairs, mirror images, props, horses, etc.

·              No t‐shirts with writing or store/brand logos

·         No studio imprint/watermark (often on proofs) or student name (I.D.) on the face or front of the photo.

·          No “creative” photographic treatment other than standard portrait lighting and editing to match.

FINAL DECISION OF SUITABILITY OF PICTURES SUBMITTED IS THE PREROGATIVE OF THE YEARBOOK ADVISER. Poor quality photos (ex. bad lighting) may not be accepted. Questions? Please contact Mr. Rypstra before the deadline!

NO PICTURES WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER THE DEADLINE OF March 1, 2019 BY 2:35 p.m.
